Uke Tune Req: Little Jim (22) Tune Req: Little Jim 05 Dec 03


I am lucklessly searching for the tune to this song, can anyone be of help? The words would be good too.

It's from about 1900 I believe, probably an American song, but the music has eluded me so far.

I've found a NZ union parody based on this song from about 1925 called "Little Hope", the first verse goes

The cottage was a 'lean-to',
Th worst I'd ever seen -
Yes, everything, inside and out,
Should be burnt with kerosene.

And goes on to describe someone's miserable living conditions at the time.
